Statement of Faith

Statement of Faith

1. The Bible is the inspired, inerrant word of God and the infallible rule of faith and practice. The Bible was written by men divinely inspired, it is the supreme, infallible authority in all matters of faith and conduct.

2. God is one God, eternally existing in three persons: Father, Son, and Holy Spirit - blessed Trinity.

3. God the Father is perfect in holiness, infinite in wisdom, omnipresent, omnipotent, all knowing, First person of the Trinity.

4. Jesus Christ is true God and true man, the second person of the Trinity. Jesus Christ was born of a virgin. He came to earth for the express purpose of paying the penalty for our sins. Jesus Christ died for our sins, was buried, and raised from the grave.

5. God the Holy Spirit, third person of the Trinity, came forth to indwell, guide, teach and empower the believer, and to convict the world of sin, of righteousness and of judgment, and to regenerate, sanctify and comfort those who believe in Jesus Christ.

6. All men and women are sinners, born with a sinful nature, separated from God, thus guilty before God, and are under His condemnation and in need of a Savior: The Lord Jesus Christ. A person must be Born Again through personal faith in Our Lord Jesus Christ, and are thus eternally saved [John 6:47 and John 10:28] by God’s Grace.

7. At the time of Physical death the believer enters immediately into eternal, conscious fellowship with the Lord and awaits the resurrection of his or her body to everlasting glory and blessing. At physical death the unbeliever enters immediately into eternal, conscious separation from the Lord in Hell and awaits the resurrection of his or her body to everlasting judgment and condemnation at the time of the final judgment as Revelations 20:11-15 proclaims.

8. The Church is a living spiritual body of which Christ Jesus is the head and of which all regenerated people are members. The Church consists of all those who believe in the Lord Jesus Christ, are redeemed through His blood, and are Born Again.

9. Every believer is endowed with Spiritual gifts that are solely for the building up of the body of Christ, not for dividing it and causing dissension within. Christians are also called to live a life of holiness apart from worldliness and sinful practice which takes time and patience as I John 1:8-10 and I John 2:1-6 instructs.
